I've seen a lot of things about the ancient stone work of many cultures being "amasing" or "supernatural" but I don't think people are looking
at the facts. Be it the pyramids of giza or any of the amazing south american works, there is nothing that amazing about any of them OTHER than the
skill and effort put into the crafting.
Virtually all of the atounding ancient stone structures are built out of stone blocks. Some are amazing because of the shear height and volume of
stone, some are set so well that to this day, thousands of years later, there are no gaps between the stones. Yet all these things could be done with
the right amount of time, skill, and desire.
Look at building futher along in human history. The Romans invented conrete, rock you mix up as a liquid then pour into any shape you want. They even
made a version that will harden underwater. I the supernatural or aliens made the pyramids...why didn't they have the liquid stone?
Further along came the use of steel in structures...be it pure steel sky scrapers or concrete/steel combinations. Modern engineering has made things
like the Washington Monument which dwarfs any egyptian obolisk, and the Saint Louis Arch makes the engineering of the pyramids look laughable. A solid
pyramid is not exactly an structural feat compared to a massive thin metal arch that can withstand high winds.
Ancient structures are amazing because they show invested human time and desire. So when you gaze at these ancient works...you should be thinking how
amazing people are...not "how did they do it"...aliens beaming down pyramids is easy.... but using your hands, some wood, and a little rope to make
one...now THAT is amazing.
